“This was a fantastic and memorable tailored trip to a great selection of very beautiful Greek islands. Great sailing adventure. Great swimming, snorkeling and relaxation stops. A variety of beautiful little islands/seaside towns with their own fresh specialty foods and history. If you are lucky enough to get Captain Mike you are in for a treat. You will be in safe hands with this captain who dealt with every situation with a calm head and extensive experience. Capt. M also has great local/historical knowledge and ideas for sightseeing and making the journey fun.”
